Franmar Soy Gel stripper

Anyone try this stuff, if so, opinions please, I just ordered some on the advice from a refinisher; I have been using Citrus Gel Stripper ( which I like ) but was told soy will cut stripping time in half

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies

cristamd is on a distinguished road
We used Captain John's Boat Brite Soy stripper a month or two ago to take old bottom paint off, and it worked well enough. We did wind up needing to use saran wrap to keep it wet long enough for it to work, and paint it on *really* thick. I'm not sure if the Franmar stuff is the same, but it's probably similar. We let the soy strip sit for 6-10 hours before scraping it, since it didn't work much faster than that.
